批評家のレビュー

"Brown moves into new territory with his latest. It's an excellent thriller: a big yet believable story unfolding at breakneck pace, with convincing settings and just the right blend of likable and hateful characters. He's also done his research, folding in sophisticated scientific and military details that make his plot far more fulfilling than the norm." (Publishers Weekly)
"A dazzling high-tech adventure...Brown proves once again that he is among the most intelligent and dynamic of authors in the thriller genre." (Library Journal)
"This is pretty exciting stuff...and Brown certainly does have a knack for spinning a suspenseful yarn." (Booklist)

あらすじ・解説

When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable: evidence of scientific trickery, a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy. But before she can warn the President, Rachel and Michael are ambushed by a deadly team of assassins. Fleeing for their lives across a desolate and lethal landscape, their only hope for survival is to discover who is behind this masterful plot. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all.

Worth checking out!

In an attempt to get a feel for Dan Brown's other work I checked this out and enjoyed it. It had suspense and a mild political theme while incorporating science and exploration. His characters were interesting and the back and forth of the story kept me wanting more throughout the book. I recommend this to those who want a good read/listen and who have an interest in science, discovery, suspense, and want some excitement.

Fantastic!

Dan Brown has another hit on his hands. My fiancee and I had a long drive over the weekend and couldn't wait to get back in the car to hear this book. I have listened to 5 books a month for the past 4 years and this book ranks in the top 5. The reader is also very skillful and easy to listen to. If you have a long trip to take somewhere, this is the book to take.

Too Predictable

It seems that when you've read one Dan Brown novel you've read them all. They all start out with a huge mystery that turns out not to be so huge at all. I like his writing style, and I did enjoy the book, but I probably won't be reading another Dan Brown book for a long time.

Some people are too picky -- This is a must

I think some people are just too hard to please. I really enjoyed DaVinci Code because of the fast-paced suspense and the subject matter. I enjoyed this book for the same reason - maybe more because of the technology topic. I have listened to over 70 audio books and this is one of the most enjoyable I have heard -- It was difficult to put down. Sure, the heros get lucky a bunch through fortuitous events-- but what's a thriller without them -- Think James Bond movies.

The narrator sounds were sometimes noticeable, but not to the extent that it bothered me. I probably would not have thought about them had others not made a big deal of them.

Good story, great narrator, bad recording

I enjoyed the story though it was a bit slow to get started (unlike Angels and Daemons and DaVinci). I got exasperated at the too frequent use of teasers in the beginning, after a while "... and then what she saw was amazing [end of chapter]" and "... he couldn't believe his eyes. [end of chapter]" got annoying rather than building more suspense. It felt like he spent the whole first half of the book making filler with teasers thrown on top for a little flavor.

One it got rolling it was a good ride though, the ending was somewhat surprising if you tried to forget the style of his other books and realize the misdirections along the way were there to make an unexpected finish. Overall quite enjoyable.

The narrator is exellent and was well directed, he gives great life to the characters, locations and events.

The recording was horrible, it sounded like they installed the mic inside the narrators mouth. The sounds of him breathing and swallowing were frequently distacting and downright disgusting at times.

A Glass of water would make this better

Why a glass of water? Well, I have NO problem with the book itself. It's smart, and may be one of my favorites. Dan Brown rocks.
The glass of water would be used to wet the "whistle" of the man who read this book. What I mean is this. Take a Microphone-Place it to your mouth. Turn up the volume. Now, move you mouth. Smack your lips, stick your tounge to the roof, and let it slap around, stick your lips to your teeth, and pull then off over and over. Now try to speak, while performing these oral gymnastics, and you'll see what I had to listen to.
Book was excellent. After an hour, you don't notice the slurping noises, except when you stop the recording,and restart it.

Same story, different characters

Don't get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Dan Brown's Deception Point. But after I finished listening to it I realized that it had the same cookie cutter plot as The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons. Brilliant world expert (on some highly specialized topic) becomes unwittingly immersered in a dangerous plot with world-altering ramifications, expert grudingly helps the good guys untangle a mystery while developing chemistry with another intellectual equal of the opposite sex, expert and sexy partner save the day, and end up fulfilling lustful desires as the story ends. The names and topic have been changed, and Dan Brown has still gone to his characteristic great lengths of research to explain highly technical information in such a way that it is easily followed. But I would have liked to have seen a digression from the Robert Langdon stories. It almost seems to me that Brown is writing his books with the hope of them being turned into a movie from the first words. Also, the narrator in this story was not the best. Every time he pronounced NASA as Nassau or nasah, it made me cringe. Also, I could hear him making sounds between pauses that were, shall we say, unpleasant? Something akin to wetting his lips. Also, he made little, if any, effort to give different characters different voices. Probably the only bad narration I have heard on Audible. Other than that, it was a fun story, cliffhangers galore, kept one sitting on the edge of one's seat or wherever, constantly engrossed. I freely admit I didn't want to turn it off until I listened to it almost straight through. Brown does a great job of engaging the reader/listener, and this book is no exception. Also, much better ending than Angels and Demons, so if you didn't like that, give this one a try. This will appeal to the techies and the reader who enjoys science and politics.

Edge of your seat thriller...

I listen to audio books while commuting back and forth to work. The first half of book was good - I like Dan Brown's style of writing - the second half of the book had me white knuckled, talking to the characters - yelling to the characters - and looking forward to my next commute.... Take me away Calgon.... Digital Fortess is next despite negative reviews. I listened to Deception Point despite negative reviews and thoroughly enjoyed it. Give it a try.

Story was okay but studio needs audio engineer

With an author like Dan Brown I would think that any studio could afford an audio engineer who is talented at minimizing background sounds. However, I listened to this book with headphones on and I could hear WAY too many bodily noises by the narrator. Story was fine, nothing like the Robert Langdon series but has an interesting premise. It was just really hard for me to listen to the story with all of the noises from the narrator. I usually don't mind noises but this one really kept me from getting into the story.

Arctic is Greek for Bear

WHEN IN DOUBT SHIT IT OUT
If only school could have been this exciting. Number one priority for me is to be entertained. Number two is to hear or learn something I have never heard or learned before. Number three is for the story to be believable. By believable it is something that could happen, not necessarily something that would most likely happen. If everything you read was what would most likely happen then it would probably be boring. Brown scores five stars on all accounts. Arctic comes from the Greek, arktos, which means bear and Antarctic means no bear. Just one of those things I will always remember that I would not have remembered in a school setting.

AIR FORCE ONE, BIG DICK
Like most of Brown's books he hits the ground running. The entire book takes place in about two days. The book is very fast paced. It covers most of the sciences, Astronomy, geology, ocean, volcanoes, whirlpools, deep ocean, plate tectonics, ice cores, entomology, origin theories, bioluminescence, panspermia etc... Then there is all the politics and some things about the government you may not have known.

YOU WILL FIND PATIENCE, A VIRTUE
The book is not perfect, as the believability factor is stressed pretty hard in some places. I was also turned off by some of the teasers. In the beginning we are told of this great find in the Arctic, but we can't tell you, you must see it. It takes several chapters and about an hour to get to this great find, all the time being teased about it.

I thought the narrator was great.

100 impossible things to do before breakfast

Good fairly fast paced romp of a thriller. Enoyed it though - better thought out than Angels and Demons and slightly more believable. The end again with a Dan Brown novel seems rather out of kilter with the rest of the novel - as if he isn't sure how to end a book which seems a shame after ploughing through so many hours.

Skin crawl.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration... Or the recording.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The saliva, swallowing and spitting noises are terrible. Completely detracts from the novel.

Disappointing

Overall I found the plot interesting and some scenes were quite absoribng but for the majority of the book there were only two scenes active, so the way the story flipped between these with articifial regularity to create tension felt very predictable and mechanistic.

Secondly I found the narration poor. I listened through headphones and a combination of mediocre sound quality and the narrator's salival noises accompanying almost every sentence finished off most of the plasure I could have got from this story.

I would say wait until audible buy a decent narrated version and have a go, it will probably be okay.

Richard Poe - Please stop swallowing so loud! :)

I was probably spoiled by the Davinci code which was an amazing introduction to Dan Brown and I'd bought this after all the big reviews I read about this title, and Im sorry DB fans but for me this was a big let down, true it does have some exciting moments and some interesting insights, but these are few and far between in a audio book of 16+ hours, to be honest after 7 hours it was becoming a real chore to get through, I've only got 2 hours left to go and I honestly cant wait for it to end (I feel like now I've put so much effort in I have to see it through to the end as some sort of weird accomplishment) , so I can start on something new- shame really.

However THE most horrible thing about this book is that once every 10 15 minutes the narrator does a horrible long, loud, saliva filled swallowing noise which (especially if you've got headphones on) is VERY off putting and makes me forget the next minutes as I get over the noise :) :) :)

Good story, poor narration.

I have all of the Dan Brown audio-books and love the narration by Paul Michael. IMO Digital Fortress and some of his other books are better but this is still a great story. However, the audio recording is let down by terrible voice over. As other reviewers have mentioned, the heavy breathing and swallowing sounds are very distracting and the narration is a little sleazy sounding and much too over-the-top for something you are listening to for several hours. It's like it's being read as an actor playing a caricature of a bad actor.

I really wish audible would re-record it with Paul Michael or another narrator!

Great story - the worse narration I have heard

What made the experience of listening to Deception Point: A Novel the most enjoyable?

The story is exciting, fast paced and very easy to listen to. I read this book when it originally came out but forget how much of a fun read it is.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Senator Sexton, a true politician!

What didn’t you like about Richard Poe’s performance?

This was one of the worse performances I have heard, the constant swallowing of saliva over the mic and overall ambient sounds he made drove me mad!

his voices are strong and the characters well read but this is all put to one side when all goes quite and suddenly the Niagara falls of spit are swallowed loudly over the book.

1 thing keept bugging me

I know the story is great, I've read the paper version and for the most part the audio version is ok, bar one thing, ever few sentences the narrator does quite an audible lip wetting/smacking sound, a small gripe I admit but one that I could not dismiss. some may not have an issue with this but I know some definitely will.

Brilliant Author!

Bravo! Yet another excellent work by Dan Brown in written form.

I do enjoy audio books but I am quite critical of narrators. I try to stick with favorite narrators where possible. Unfortunately Richard Poe is not one of my favorites.

I was frustrated with the audio quality, lack of microphone filter and his vocal inflections.
He sounds windy, nasally, his voice squeaks and feel that I just want to get him a glass of water each time I listen to him.

A brilliant story! I decided to buy the book in print.

A new all time favourite!

Would you listen to Deception Point again? Why?

No I don't read books twice but I'll be def recommending it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Deception Point?

The book has so many memorable features. Absolute nail biting adventure. Just when you thought the action was over; the book moved to a different suspense ful situation - all quite feasible & well thought out.

Which character – as performed by Richard Poe – was your favourite?

I enjoyed the two main female characters, not a patronizing girl with a sprained ankle in sight!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I cancelled engagements because I had to hear the outcome of some chapters. It kept me riveted from beginning to end.

Any additional comments?

I have 55 books I've read in the last year... All have been best sellers. This one is a stand out. I'm thinking it's better than the da vinchy code... Yes big call eh!

Great story, poor narration

As usual Dan Brown’s writing was interesting and engaging. Unfortunately this was marred by the narrator Richard Poe. The attempt to voice different characters was poorly done, almost comical. The recording of the narrator’s voice was also terrible. The microphone sensitivity was set too high so you could clearly hear every one of his rasping breaths while reading the script.

If possible try to find another reading of this book by a better narrator and recording team.

Left me hanging

A great story that weaved fact and fiction into a very believable plot. Good cast of characters with the usual twists and baddies.
Had a slightly flat ending with an inevitable outcome, would have liked a more climactic finish. Nevertheless, a great story from the Master Dan Brown.
